I'll up the ante on this one and take on a future Purdue-Rutgers game, but only because moderating a live blog between fans of a terrible team that are very well-meaning and fans of a terrible team that are already perfecting the art of "classless asshole" should make for a game where everyone is banned by the midpoint of the third quarter.
|7 hours 22 min ago||Not Really...||
I don't think it does really, but remember that those five houses saw, as their first live BTN event telecast, some school from North Carolina play a #5 Michigan team and, well.....*drinks*.
In all seriousness though, I don't think Comcast (my provider) resolved their BTN contract much before 2008 or so.

If I've got something going on Friday night, the 3:30 PM starts actually seem to work better because I am not literally rolling out of bed and into the game like it seems sometimes - I used to be able to do that without blinking as a student, but about twenty years later, it's a bit taxing. Also, the 3:30 PM starts work better if the family is coming because I find it is difficult sometimes to convince two elementary-aged children and a wife whose obsession does not reach your level to get out the door quite that early.
|13 hours 5 min ago||For Now, Of Course...||
For now, of course, it's a mere prediction and we can still rest relatively easily about that, but if it ever were in fact announced as an actual bowl game, I do have a feeling that the room where the server for this blog is would, well....
|13 hours 35 min ago||1995 Vs. MSU....||
I believe it was in the game against Michigan State in 1995. As I recall, Carr and Biakabatuka got the rushing TDs that we scored in that game. That might have even been Carr's longest run in that role too - it was perhaps 3 or 4 yards on the score.
|14 hours 45 min ago||I Liked It...||
I think Hurst's high school team used him like that too, as a short-yardage / goal line FB, but yeah, I was immediately reminded of the days of William Carr when they put him out there on that play. As I recall, Carr was about 6'0'' and 270 pounds, and Hurst is a smidge bigger than that, I believe, so if we need someone who can eliminate hazards, if you will, with his own force as he or others cross the goal line, I am OK with that.

Even worse, it's all on tape too. CollegeFootballTalk has their own article going here as well - LINK
Video surveillance from the casino shows Rawls entering a casino eatery with two other men, observing an abandoned purse in a chair, and sitting on it, according to an affidavit requesting arrest warrants filed by a Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police officer. After sitting on the purse, Rawls hands it to one of his companions, who places it in a bag before the pair leave the casino, the officer said.
|16 hours 36 min ago||Interesting Article...||
That was actually a pretty interesting piece, I thought. Thanks for sharing.
I'll be honest - I never really thought about USA Basketball as that sort of a marketing opportunity for folks like Krzyzewski, but then it wasn't something I necessarily mulled over at great length. The end of the piece actually is what made me sit and think about what is really happening here perhaps:
So the NBA stars climbed onto the podium on Sunday night at the Palacio de los Deportes, and there was Mike Krzyzewski making his move to the far end, framing himself with the gold medalists.
Yeah, I think I can guess who will - in the long term - get the most mileage out of that photo opportunity. That being said, if you can do this - and you can - why would you not?

When asked if any more color combinations were in the works, Whittingham noted that the Utes now have white, red and black gear.
So, eventually, Utah is going to have Oregon's problem if this keeps up, of course, although to be fair to the Ducks, only having to wear the same uniform once every 3-4 years (or once and then never again, depending) may save a bit on laundry.
Here's the embed of the OP's video of their introduction, incidentally:

The "new old system" went away due to some malware issues, as I recall, and the karma system was the replacement which fit most comfortably within Drupal, as far as I understand - actually, there is a module which basically has all that programming in it. However, the current system was always slated to return, and now it has, and as far as I am aware, this is how it will be in perpetuity.
Now, if we're talking about whether or not it is possible to do this in the current system by number of upvotes, that might not be a bad Brian question.

The thought of the Heart Of Dallas Bowl sort of makes me....
|1 day 10 hours ago||Possible Solution...||
I will say that I wouldn't be upset if we took a setup like this and placed it in front of the opposing bench, then at some point, sending over some assistant to check the locks on the cages after which he would look at their bench with a worried look and say, "I'll be back in a little bit..." The idea, of course, is that they would never return and the opposing team would spend the entire game focused on the question - "Will I be eaten by a Wolverine?"

|1 day 12 hours ago||About The Jacket...||
I had always ssumed that, like many business, you would begin to get the catalog at your five-year anniversary and then every so often after that, and that like most such catalogs from which to choose your anniversary gift, it would come down to the alarm clock that also displays the weather or the pen that also can be used as a laser pointer. If there is a jacket involved as noted above, I think that trumps both of those things, especially if the jacket can tell you the weather or also be used as a laser pointer.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Lions Take The Lead...||
It was most kind of Jed Collins to comfort the ball on that touchdown and thank it for its cooperation by patting it on the "back", if that's what we're going to call it now. Still, nice drive and the Lions go up 7-6. Definitely wouldn't mind another score to get a little breathing room.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Minor Victory...||
Well, holding Carolina to an FG here is something of a minor victory here despite the fact that it puts the Panthers on the board, but it still doesn't make me want to put some sort of adhesive on Bell's gloves all the same - that fumble still stings a bit.

Here's what the latest predictions for our remaining games look like over at Massey Ratings, complete with estimated win probability and median score.
|1 day 17 hours ago||It Is Quite The Turnaround...||
Actually, when you consider that wet had only 1,634 (per the stats archive) net rushing yards last year and, in three games this year, we're at 729 net yards, that's actually quite the turnaround. That's 44% of last year's production in just three games - an OC and scheme change and compared to what it had been, the results are encouraging. This is especially true when, as Brown Bear mentions, we weren't doing this almost regardless of competition last year.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Actually...||
Actually, that number above is with those sorts of things omitted already. There were 42 specific instances of "tire fire" or uses of "fire" in a sense other than a call for someone losing their position. That also accounts for people who have the word in their signature line, which right now is a fair number of posters.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Well Done...||
Glad you were able to go to the game, Darker Blue, and well done, Seth!
The MGCommunity here definitely stands out in the volume and manner of its giving, and it is great to see stories like this posted from time to time.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Also The Timing...||
Supposedly, the announcement was made only about two hours before kickoff too, and sometimes (not all the time) when teams do that, it turns out to be just for one game, but then that's not always the case depending on the offense. Either way, hopefully it isn't something serious because it looked as if Rawls was going to settle into a nice season here, even being named MAC player of the week last week, I believe.

To Raoul's post above, Mgo-Bo is indeed MGoGone now. When one's hot take involves calling someone a "cocksucker" and telling someone to "fuck off", yeah, that would be the sort of poster we could do without.
Calling out fans for leaving early
That thread probably will not lead to much in the way of constructive discussion, so it will be pulled before the OP gets too much grief for it.

It's a minor sidenote, to be sure, but I think the video games medley was done during the ND / Michigan halftime show in 2004. I do remember particularly enjoying that as it allowed me to spend a few minutes reliving my childhood, so well done. To your point, however, I believe you're right - they have employed a guitar before. Didn't they also do it -perhaps very briefly - in 2007 when they did a medley of songs found in "Guitar Hero"? I could be wrong, but I think somewhere in there was a guitar too.
|2 days 7 hours ago||And Rutgers Scores...||
Well, Gary Nova did rather untraditional Gray Nova things to make that rushing TD, and indeed, a quick check of the stats confirms it is only the second time he has run into the end zone himself. Of course, it is a good thing the TD signal is obvious or the mic problems would have perhaps accidentally rolled into a situation where this was reviewed for intentional grounding somehow.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Meanwhile...||
Meanwhile, if the referee is to be believed in Piscataway, hjgprggjps was called against gjrgjprwrkg, number kdlghlgg on the offense, and it was apparently 10 yards (holding, yes, but you had to see it because the mic is inadequate). Probably should have the mic checked at some point.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Well Done Indeed...||
Considering some of the limitations of MS Paint (and perhaps I say that because I suck at it), this is really high quality, I think and if you don't mind, I am going to make it the background on one of my work monitors. Very good work!
|2 days 8 hours ago||Perhaps It Is Me...||
Perhaps it is me, but it seems that there's still a lack of meaningful data on Shane Morris when it comes to this facet of his game, although I will say the two that he threw today were rather catchable. If that's where this is going, I agree that he looks a bit better each time we see him.
I did like the run he made - if that's part of his game when he is in charge of the offense at some point, then that's definitely a strength and something that we can definitely employ. I believe the depth chart at QB is pretty much as you see it for the year, but the moment, Shane does slide up to #1 when Gardner leaves, this offense should probably be in good hands.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Wow Indeed...||
Well, if Iowa State had to win something, it may as well be the CyHawk. It's rather a shame that it was redesigned, because I liked the idea of a trophy which depicted a man and his family looking as if they were going to throw up in a bucket of corn.
